Fellow Modelers,

This is Lunar Models’ 1/200 scale Luna Spaceship Diorama from the 1950 movie “Destination Moon”. The scene depicts the astronauts trying to reduce the ship’s weight so they will have enough fuel to return to Earth. Modifications to the kit included removing the molded in debris field and creating one (piece by piece) from my spares box. The stand mounted camera was also scratch built. The two astronauts are modified sailors from a Renwal Polaris submarine kit. The only reference used (for the colors) was the movie itself. The movie is still very impressive, considering it was made almost 60 years ago and the Luna spaceship represents (I think) early movie sci-fi design at its best.
